"I used ProgressBook while student teaching and while I loved using it, it was really hard to get students and parents on board with it in the district I was in. Students didn't know their usernames and passwords, and most parents weren't that interested in their child's education, which is sad, but that's how the culture of that district was. Also, on ProgressBook, teachers could access parent contact info which was nice! It was also nice to use because when students had missing work, you could run reports that showed their grades, what they were missing, etc. There were SO many features to it, many of which I didn't use, but I loved using it nonetheless."

"Edline is an invaluable academic communication tool. Parent's primary request has always been more communication on all levels and Edline allows the school to provide this. Now that we have this wonderful tool it's the parent's responsibility to keep the doors of communication open. This is the #1 most valuable tool that educators have with parents for academic and social communication.
Schools that don't have a web site can use Edline as an on-line tool for communication. Edline in conjunction with Administrator's Plus is everything that a parent could want. Edline provides Daily news, calendars, reports, grades, and much much more. It's clearly the New Bulletin Communication Tool."
